Occupational Therapy (OT)

Make Appointments & Get Care

What is Occupational Therapy (OT)?

Occupational therapy is more than restoring lost function. It’s about your ability to remain independent and achieve a sense of well-being so you can return to your daily routine at home and at work. UR Medicine's Occupational Therapy team works closely with physical therapists to create a plan and provide care that will restore your independence and overall quality of life.

UR Medicine's Approach

UR Medicine's Occupational Therapy program offers three kinds of OT:

Outpatient occupational therapy provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment to address deficits which affect a person’s everyday function related to things like vision, cognition, motor planning, strength, range of motion of the upper extremity, perception, sensation, and dexterity.

Inpatient occupational therapy in the hospital setting helps patients regain independence, with functional tasks to safely transition to the next level of care. This therapy would be provided on the inpatient acute care units or as part of the inpatient rehabilitation program.

Pediatric occupational therapy helps children gain independence while also strengthening the development of necessary skills for them to play, engage in education, complete self-care, and socialize.
